    Yes I have had them done. I can press the brake pedal on time and I have to really press it far down for it to stop. Then I can go a little ways up the road and press it with a feather and fly through the windshield

My 1995 manual mazda astina horn keeps beeping when i step on the brake? The clutch seems to be sinking into the floor. Are these related and how do i stop my car beeping at innocent people?


Hi, it sounds like you have air getting into your clutch slave cylinder as thats what causes the pedal to sink to the floor when you have air in the system . As for the horn your brake pedal could be touching a bare horn cable that must be some were on the car floor or outside the car . You will have to check inside and out side for a bare wire next to the brake pedal.

How to adjust parking brake on 1993 chevy lumina ?




  • Adjustments




  1. Apply service brake pedal three times with a force of approximately 175 lbs.


  2. Fully apply and release parking brake three times. Full application may require two pedal strokes.


  3. Raise and support vehicle, then mark relationship between wheel and axle flange.


  4. Check parking brake pedal assembly for full release as follows:






    1. Turn ignition switch to On position.


    2. If ``Brake\'\' lamp is illuminated, operate manual brake release and pull downward on front parking brake cable to remove slack from pedal assembly.





  1. Remove rear wheel and tire assemblies, then install two lug nuts to retain each rotor assembly.


  2. If two parking brake levers on both calipers are not against lever stops on caliper housings, check for binding in rear cables and/or loosen cables at adjuster until both left and right levers are against their stops.


  3. Tighten parking brake cable at adjuster until either the left or right lever begins to move off the stop, then loosen adjustment until lever moves back barely touching stop.


  4. Operate parking brake several times to check adjustments. A firm pedal feel should be obtained by pumping pedal two full strokes and rear wheels should not rotate forward when parking brake is fully applied.


  5. Install wheel and tire assemblies, aligning marks made in step 3.

Trans down shifts at 60 while cruising


Thinking it's coming out of lockup not actually downshifting,
possibly brake pedal switch adjustment,TPS, or lockup solonid is
faulty. Notice how you can cruise at 60 and just barely touch
the brake pedal,it will come out of overdrive,you can feel it.
If you have a tach the lockup will only change the RPM about
500 ,if it was downshifting it would be more like 2000.

I have a 1997 Nissan Pathfinder. Tonight I went out to a movie and upon exiting my vehicle noticed my brake lights were on. I opened my door and pulled back on the brake pedal, for a second they turned off...


Climb under the dash and look on the back of the brake pedal, brakelight switch will be on the back of the brake pedal arm halfway up the arm.

Look around in the floorboard and look for some fragments of rubber. If you see some fragments of rubber then the little piece of rubber that is attached to the back of the brake arm has probably fallen off. If the rubber piece breaks and falls off then the brakelight switch will stay on because it will be touching bare metal and grounding the switch making it stay on all the time.

And that seems to make sense because when you pulled back on the pedal the brakelights went
off. Because you pulled the pedal back until it was not making contact with the switch anymore.

And the tach problem is unrelated. And im not sure about whats wrong with the tachometer. But I would suspect the vehicle speed sensor is faulty.

Rear brakes locking up

Rear brakes locking up with slight touch of brake pedal.


Most of the time with the rear brakes locking up the brake drums are warpped. If you remove the rear brake drums and take them to almost any auto parts store (Napa, Checkers ect.) they will turn the drums for about $10 a piece.

After you have the drums turned you will need to readjust the rear brakes.
